  • Angela's Ashes

    Why we think it’s a great listen: There’s no gentle way to put this – Frank McCourt’s performance of Angela’s Ashes is just better than the Pulitzer Prize-winning book. Frank McCourt shares his sometimes heartwarming, sometimes heartbreaking story of growing up poor, Irish, and Catholic in the Pulitzer Prize-winning memoir Angela's Ashes.

    Karen says: "A classic book *and* a classic audiobook"
    "Fabulous"
    Overall

    Fabulous to hear Frank McCourt recounting his own life. This audio book adds so much to the the written book.

  • Joy in the Morning

    • UNABRIDGED (6 hrs and 57 mins)

    Story
    (54)

    Trapped in rural Steeple Bumpleigh, a man less stalwart than Bertie Wooster would probably have given way at the knees. For among those present were Florence Craye, to who Bertie had once been engaged...and her new fiance 'Stilton' Cheesewright, who regarded Bertie as a snake in the grass...also Zenobia Hopwood and her guardian Lord Worplesdon, whose violent antipathy to 'Boko' Fittleworth amounted to obsession...and that biggest blot on the landscape, Edwin the Boy Scout.

    Masselyn says: "Great story & reader, quality is not wonderful!"
    "bad audio quality"
    Overall

    I love Jonathan Cecil, but the audio quality sounds like he's reading under water. Shame.

  • 'Tis

    Story
    (371)

    Listen as Frank tells in his own inimitable voice his story of how at the age of 19 he traveled from Limerick to New York in pursuit of the American dream. Despite the abundance of unsolicited advice he gets to "join the cops" and "stick to his own kind", Frank knows that he should educate himself and somehow rise above his circumstances.

    Stanley says: "A second delightful helping"
    "sounds distorted"
    Overall

    I loved Angela's Ashes, and was interested to hear how McCourt's life unfolded. It wasn't as captivating as his first book, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. The audio on this sounded really distorted, almost as if it was slowed to 1/2 time.
